Just spent a few moments on an example of a start:
A quick google brought up the the e4000 tuner chip here:
from elonics that they claim can feed DAB+ into the Realtek RTL2832U chip; which
demodulates the signal and squirts it over the USB bus.
Now take a look here for the semi-current Linux kernel viewpoint for this
specific Realtek USB endpoint:
Notice that the following appears on that page:
"At present drivers of various quality can be found on the net although none
have been known to work consistently. For the Zazz ezcap DVB-T FM DAB and Twintech UT30 the following driver works:"
You can find a high level overview of the Realtek chip here:
Wondering if there's a reference board available somewhere and if there's
relevant low level chip specifications that can be found.
This is where shit like this all this begins.
